Poland has accused Belarus of waging the "war of a new kind", calling the illegal migrants and media weapons of this war. Mateusz Morawiecki, the Prime Minister of Poland posted this on Facebook.

"Today, we are facing the aggression from our Eastern neighbor again... We have to deal with the new kind of war. It's a war, in which peaceful civilians and media messages come as ammunition", Morawiecki wrote. 

He added that this new war "poses no immediate threat to people's lives, but it's still quite serious and dramatic for many".
